EXPERIENCE WITH TAUCK

 

With an expert local guide, experience an authentic taste of old and new at an iconic market in the heart of Jerusalem, dating back to the days of the Ottomans and today renowned as a symbol of daily life in one of the oldest cities in the world.

 

Venture into the lunar-like landscapes of Wadi Rum, nicknamed the “Valley of the Moon,” on an exciting 4 x 4 excursion that culminates in a tented Bedouin feast with music, sword dancing and camel rides, made more memorable by stargazing under the desert’s stunning night sky.

 

Set out from the port city of Aqaba aboard a private boat for a sundowner cruise on the Red Sea, where the waters were once parted by Moses and today open up to coral reefs renowned for rewarding diving adventures. 

 

Visit a historic kibbutz in the Israeli countryside en route to the ancient mountaintop fortress of Masada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built by King Herod in the first century AD with views of the Dead Sea, and your 5-star resort located right on the shores of the famous salt lake.

Experiences of a lifetime

The past informs the present in the biblical lands of Israel and Jordan, offering guests an interlacing tapestry of cultural history millennia strong. From the rose colored stones that blend Jerusalem’s urban landscapes with its ancient archaeological roots to Dead Sea destinations scrolled with the sands of time, Red Sea resorts that sail into the future to Jordan’s sculpted ruins and age-old cities with tales to tell, the places you’ll discover on this new 11-day journey speak volumes about daily life, then and now. 

Explore Jerusalem from different perspectives on a tour of the Old City and a tasting in the new. Discover religious relics in Bethlehem or Jaffa’s arched alleyways and the architectural heritage of Tel Aviv as you please. You’ll visit a kibbutz in the Israeli countryside, a hilltop mecca in Masada, and soak in the salts at a Dead Sea resort before crossing into Jordan for a Red Sea cruise. Adventure awaits at a desert oasis in Wadi Rum, treasured sights astound in Petra and dinner with a local family whets your appetite for an authentic cultural connection. Visions of the Promised Land entice at Mt. Nebo, and in Jerash, a wealth of sights, remarkably preserved, reflect Roman rule here thousands of years ago. Amman mixes old and new with a youthful exuberance all its own, inviting you to experience Middle Eastern hospitality in 2021.  Read Less
